Dear ,

Everything happens in a cycle. When you graduated school, so did most of your friends. The same happens with marriage and kids. This past weekend I’ve come to a period where our friends are reaching their 5th decade! Though it is several years away for me, I believe that I am forever young at heart.

One of my girlfriend on the weekend trip introduced me to jump roping. She’s the fittest I’ve ever seen her, flashing her 6-pack everywhere! She inspired me to follow suit and I picked-up some jump ropes. A gym mate told me it’s time I shock the body and break out of my normal exercise routine and I agree!

How about you? Want to do something outside of your normal routine? Join us on 10/Nov for the Best Networking Lunch in Bangkok! Check out our feature speakers below.

Want to be more daring? Then become nominee for Entrepreneur Now Awards. We’re running weekly workshop to help you do your video nomination. The new date deadline is 31/Jan/17. Scroll down for details.

With Gratitude,

The BBC is different because it is a proactive way to network with other businesses. Instead of the usual one to one networking style in a social setting or speed-networking, the format is one to group. BBC is appropriate for business owners, sales and marketing professionals. The meeting is 2 hours and conducted during lunch time and includes a meal. Everyone has a chance to present their company in 60 seconds.

How Product Placement Works

I WAS watching an Indian drama on cable TV when I noticed one of the leading characters holding a bag of a popular brand of Indian chips during one scene. She held on to that bag throughout the five-minute scene and even mentioned its name. She talked about how her life was full of twists and turns, much the same way... read more.

Joke of the week

A businessman who needed millions of dollars to clinch an important deal went to church to pray for the money.
By chance he knelt next to a man who was praying for $100 to pay an urgent debt.
The businessman took out his wallet and pressed $100 into the other man’s hand.
Overjoyed, the man got up and left the church.
The businessman then closed his eyes and prayed, “And now, Lord, that I have your undivided attention….”
